The regions in Sweden, Norway and Denmark bordering Skagerrak collaborate in the EU project Forum Skagerrak II. The aim is to widen the knowledge of and deliver concrete actions for a cleaner and more attractive sea and coasts. The project work involves governmental and regional organisations as well as other interested parties.

The project includes work in seven areas:

  1. Eutrophication
  2. Hazardous substances, marine litter and oil spills
  3. Fish and shellfish issues
  4. Integrated coastal zone management and planning
  5. Coordinated environmental monitoring
  6. Mapping for increased knowledge on sensitive deep sea beds
  7. Dissemination of information

Organisations safeguarding a sustainable Skagerrak are invited to follow the work of Forum Skagerrak II. The participation of all with an interest in these issues is important!

When the project terminates in 2007, a permanent Forum Skagerrak will be instituted to secure sustainability of the environmental improvement and development of Skagerrak.
